I have been working at Autonomy

Pros

A pretty good indexer that often works as advertised.

Cons

Now Autonomy is targeting OpenText for its next aquisition according to all the office buzz and trade rags.
Poor OpenText customers. Interwoven WorkSite customers saw their mean time for engineering support drop from 10 minutes to 83 minutes. I hope OpenText customers are more patient than Interwoven customers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please dont ruin OpenText too. Find another company to buy. You can continue to live off the maintenance revenue of that company instead.

    I have been working at Autonomy

    Pros

    The compensation package is good (and that's what they count on to keep you here), benefits are above average, interesting technology - when it works.

    Cons

    The culture is horrid; these people are the ultimate micro-managers; the sketchy ethics make me afraid to learn too much about what goes on behind closed doors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm not sure management is interested in any advice or feedback. It's definitely a "churn & burn" type culture. It's either their way, or the highway. Nothing in-between.
